Torn to Pieces is the killer effect Shawn Farquhar has kept secret for over fifteen years! It's the cash cow Shawn turns to time-after-time, whether he needs a client to book him again and again, or wants to make a lasting impression. This is Shawn's version of Old Faithful, (some of us have an effect with a pet name that you can count on to pay it forward every time - if you don't, or even if you do - now you have another one!).
Effect: Basically a real photograph signed by the spectator is torn into four pieces. The photo is really torn. Then in an instant all four pieces join together but in the wrong order leaving the spectator with a mismatched photo with their signature! That's right their signature is on the odd "almost restored" photo. You get a sample of the photograph, Adobe Photoshop template, jpeg of two additional photos already prepared and a detailed instructional DVD that explains how you can start doing this trick. This was one of the effects featured on the Ellen DeGeneres television show.
Important Note: You will need access to an ink/laser printer or a digital photo center to make additional photos, well worth the effort but provided for disclosure. Torn and almost restored photo.
Expected availability around Thursday 15 January, 2015.
